Yew Wood Venues is once again delighted to be in a position to present their ever popular lunchtime concerts…….this occasion will be a super duper event, when they present The Presto Quartet.
The Presto Quartet was formed in 2012 at the CIT Cork School of Music and had the privilege of being coached by Adrian Petcu until 2015, and by Christopher Marwood since September 2015. The Quartet is comprised of 4 members of the Cork Youth Orchestra, with which they recently performed in the Festival of Youth Orchestras in Tuscany in July 2016. Concerts took place in Florence, Perugia and Montecatini.
Members of the quartet participated in summer chamber music courses in Aravon School, Bray, Co. Dublin as well as ConCorda 2015 and 2016. In 2016, they were the highest placed string quartet in the Feis Ceoil Under 17 Junior Chamber Music Cup, winning the Silver medal (2nd place).
The Presto Quartet have given performances in a variety of settings, such as Cork Culture Night, a coffee concert for the SMEI conference, CSM Open Days and as part of the IAYO Festival of Youth Orchestras in the National Concert Hall (Music in the Foyer). In addition, they regularly play in the community, and have brought live music to St. Luke’s retirement home and St. Finbarr’s hospital in Cork
Their music we describe as “Hearing is Believing”
